  • RESTORE GUT HEALTH FORMULA + VIDEO

    Fred Liers PhD restore liquid mineral supplement gut healthHeard of RESTORE liquid mineral supplement? If not, you're about to discover something important for gut health.

    RESTORE™ is formulated to help restore gut health. It works by strengthening the integrity of tight junctions in your intestinal wall.

    Maintaining tight junctions is important because they protect your body from substances entering the blood stream. Restore also supports the communications systems of the bacteria in your microbiome.

    Tight junctions are natural barriers protecting the lining of your gut barrier, organs such as kidneys and heart, and the blood-brain barrier thereby keeping out unwanted substances. Even as we take in nutrients from the GI tract, the function of tight junctions is maintaining the integrity of the gut wall and other barriers that protect the body.

    These days, our gut membrane has a tough job keeping out unwanted substances. Because tight junctions are weakened by many things, including highly processed foods, especially those containing gluten and gliadin, the herbicide glyphosate (the primary ingredient in RoundUp weedkiller), and other exposures like electromagnetic fields (EMF) from digital devices and Wi-Fi networks.

    As a result of weakened tight junctions, undesirable substances from food proteins, harmful chemicals and other toxins can slip though into our bloodstream. This can lead to a powerful immune response that can weaken immunity and cause significant inflammation. Foreign substances in the bloodstream can also result in extreme food allergies and food sensitivities to various toxins entering the body.

    We live in an age in which our microbiome health is under assault.  Studies show our ancient ancestors had 20,000–30,000 different strains of beneficial bacteria in their GI tracts. Many people today have just 5,000 or less. Why is that?

    There are many reasons for low microbiome diversity. These reasons include antiobiotic use (both from pharmaceuticals and foods), glyphosate (which essentially acts like an antibiotic), processed foods (especially those containing gluten and gliadin), and systemic degradation of the gut environment rendering it less hospitable for maintaining health populations of gut flora.

    These impacts are significant because diversity in your microbiome not only supports gut health, but also appropriate  brain health, immune system health, and overall vitality. Restore acts as a "microbiome fertilizer" helping establish and maintain healthy microbiota.

    In fact, Restore contains important "redox" molecules produced millions of years ago by existing soil bacteria. These molecules are an important part of communications systems within the body between gut bacteria and with the body's mitochondria. These communication systems play an important role in establishing proper homeostasis throughout the body.

    REASONS TO USE RESTORE™

    There are important reasons to try Restore—whether or not you experience significant gut health issues. These reasons include:

    • Maintaining strong tight junctions for mega membrane health, and helping the body restore tight junction integrity

    • Creating an environment in which beneficial bacteria can thrive

    • Boosting microbiome diversity

    • Healing the gut

    • Mitigating the adverse effects substances like antibiotics, gluten/gliadin, glyphosate, and GMOs on microbiome health

    • Supporting immune system function

    • Protecting integrity of blood-brain barrier

    Other benefits include support for respiratory wellness, enhancing mental clarity, and promoting proper homeostasis throughout the body.

    For all these reasons and more, you should consider taking Restore. You can start by taking one teaspoon or less daily, and gradually increasing your dose to one tablespoon or more.Restore for gut health liquid supplement

    I have taken Restore daily for more than two years, and benefit greatly from it. The most noticeable effects are a complete cessation of spring allergies (after two decades of worsening symptoms), greater clarity of thinking, and improved overall well being. I have seen other people get good results with a variety of conditions from dysbiosis to gluten/gliadin sensitivity.

    MORE ABOUT RESTORE™

    You can learn more about Restore on our website. Also, the Restore website offers in-depth information and videos. Here is how the Restore website and Dr. Zach Bush describe the formula:

    Restore is a dietary supplement supplying first line defense against daily exposure to environmental and food-borne factors. It helps create an optimal environment or ecology in the gut membrane for beneficial or "good" bacteria to flourish. Beneficial gut flora protect your immune system and maintain health. Restore is a scientifically proven soil-derived mineral supplement designed to support protection of the intestinal walls.

    Restore protects the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract against agricultural herbicides, antibiotics, GMOs, gluten, and food-borne toxins. It helps create an environment in which 20,000–30,000 different strains of beneficial gut bacteria can thrive. This is a far different mode of action from probiotics, most of which contain just 3–30 strains of beneficial bacteria.

    Restore helps create a strong immune system along with proper gut function. Microbiome balance and tight junction integrity are known to constitute a significant part of the immune system. They directly affect DNA transcription of cells to promote optimal health and prevent a leaky gut syndrome, thereby improving gut intelligence.

    Seventy percent (70%) of our immune system is found in our gut. We need tens of thousands different strains of good gut bacteria to support a healthy immune system. Clinical experience, in addition to cell culture studies, support the theory that Restore’s proprietary formula creates the optimal environment in the gut to create a tight junction barrier and maintain our health and wellness.

    Restore is a daily liquid supplement designed to support the protection of the entire gastrointestinal (GI) tract against agricultural herbicides, antibiotics, GMOs, gluten and food-borne toxins by helping to create an environment where between 20,000-30,000 different strains of good gut bacteria thrive. Most probiotics on the market contain fewer than 24 different strains of good gut bacteria.

    TRY RESTORE™

    Restore is ideal for individuals suffering from gut health issues. Yet, it is also excellent for supporting and maintaining gut health generally. That is the reason we at HPDI consider Restore important enough to designate as a foundational supplement, one of the top six supplements you need for good health.

    Given the safety and effectiveness of Restore, there is broad applicability for its use. This is especially true because gut and microbiome health are under constant assault. These assaults range from multiple environmental and lifestyle factors—including poor diets high in processed foods, antibiotics in pharmaceuticals and animal foods—to massive glyphosate (herbicide) contamination of foods, soils, air, and water.

    Let Restore be your first line of defense against assaults on your gut health, tight junctions, microbiome diversity, and immune function. As it says on the bottle, "Complete well-being begins in the gut."

  • HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS – MAKE HYDROGEN DRINKS

    Fred Liers PhD hydrogen supplements drinks H2I love hydrogen supplements. So should you. Since starting my morning—and often afternoon—routine of making hydrogen drinks in the kitchen, I have come to appreciate the surge of energy lasting many hours, as well as a host of other benefits.

    Most of all, I am amazed how easy hydrogen supplements are to use considering how much they do for you, and how well they complement the supplements I already take—seeming to make them all more effective.

    I typically use one or two effervescing Active H2 Ultra tablets in 8–16 ounces of water. Then I like to open one Megahydrate capsule directly in the effervescing water. I wait about 90 seconds to let the tablets stop "fizzing" and then I drink immediately. Allowing the drink to sit for a few minutes is okay, but the sooner you drink it, the higher the concentration of hydrogen. Note: I used Vital Reaction tablets in this video, but my preferred product is the new, improved Active H2 Ultra (tablets) which dissolves in less than one minute—faster than other hydrogen tablet formulas—thereby preserving more hydrogen in the water.

    HYDROGEN SUPPLEMENTS ARE EFFECTIVE

    Hydrogen supplements are among the newer, cutting-edge nutritional formulas available to support optimal health. More than 500 scientific articles now support the therapeutic potential hydrogen for essentially every organ system and in 150 human disease models, according to the non-profit Molecular Hydrogen Foundation. In fact, hydrogen is rapidly incorporated into medicine, sports medicine, peak performance, elite fitness, and more.

    Hydrogen is an antioxidant. It is also an extremely small molecule that can penetrate even the tiniest cellular compartments. This helps explain how hydrogen works to offer free-radical defense throughout the entire body.

    The medical and scientific literature is clear. Hydrogen's modes of action:

    H2 reduces oxidative stress as a selective antioxidant and by maintaining homeostatic levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc.

    H2, like other gaseous signaling molecules (i.e. NO, CO, H2S), appears to have cell signal-modulating activity affording it with anti-inflammatory, anti-obesity, and anti-allergy benefits.

    We include hydrogen supplements in HPDI's system of Foundational Supplements. In fact, hydrogen formulas as just one of six foundational supplements. We consider hydrogen a "secondary" foundational supplement usually to be added to a supplement regimen after the four primary ones: multivitamins, antioxidant & vitamin C formulas, essential fatty acids, and superfoods high in dietary nucleic acids (i.e., Rejuvenate! superfoods).

    HYDROGEN MEDICINE

    The scientific literature discusses the use of molecular hydrogen for many clinical applications, including:

    • Metabolic Syndrome including diabetes, hyperlipidemia, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, and obesity

    • Ischemia/reperfusion injuries, including cerebral and myocardial infarctions, organ transplants, post-cardiac arrest

    • Neuroprotection, including applications for dementia, Parkinson's disease, depression, and anesthesia

    • Inflammation, including applications for polymicrobial sepsis, rheumatoid arthritis, wound healing, and bowel diseases

    • Mitochondrial diseases

    • Hemodialysis and ventilation

    • Aging, including cognitive decline

    • Exercise, including applications for fatigue, lactic acid, recovery, and oxidative stress related to heavy exercise

    Side effects of cancer therapies, including radiotherapy and chemotherapy

    • Many other benefits

    HOW HYDROGEN WORKS

    According to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation, there are three ways molecular hydrogen exerts positive health effects.

    1.  Molecular hydrogen easily diffuses into subcellular compartments where it scavenges cytotoxic oxygen radicals, thereby protecting DNA, RNA, and proteins against oxidative stress.

    2.  Molecular hydrogen triggers activation or upregulation of additional antioxidant enzymes (e.g., glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, and others) and/or cytoprotective proteins of the body.

    3.  Molecular hydrogen may be a novel signaling molecule that alters cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression. This may explain its apparent anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-apoptotic (or anti-cell death) effects.

    HYDROGEN IS SAFE

    Molecular hydrogen exhibits great safety, and it is regarded as safe for use in the body. It is shown no toxicity even in high concentrations.

    Safety standards have long been established for high concentrations of hydrogen for inhalation largely because of the history of high-pressure H2 gas used in deep-water diving gas mixtures for preventing decompression sickness.

    Notably, H2 gas combusts only at temperatures higher than 527 °C, and it explodes by chain reaction with oxygen (O2) only in the range of Hconcentration (4–75%, vol/vol).

    Molecular hydrogen is used for medical applications safely by several ingestion methods including inhalation of 1–4% hydrogen gas, for example, which exhibits great effectiveness. All these factors mean that hydrogen is safe, easy-to-use, and effective for therapeutic purposes.

    DRINKING HYDROGEN-INFUSED WATER

    According to the Molecular Hydrogen Foundation, drinking H2-rich water is the easiest, and often the most effective, method for obtaining hydrogen.

    Drinking hydrogen-infused water is easy to do, and convenient as you can drink it at home or while traveling. Effective hydrogen products HPDI carries include Active H2 Ultra tablets, and Megahydrate capsules.

    As noted, I make one or two hydrogen drinks daily, first in the morning and then often again in the afternoon. I drink them on an empty stomach. I enjoy a significant energy boost, which helps power me through my day. I gain other benefits, including improved athletic performance, noticeably faster recovery from exercise, and an overall greater sense of well-being.

    I highly recommend you try hydrogen supplements for yourself, and then consider them for your clients or patients. Our experience is that most people are pleasantly surprised by the results they get from hydrogen supplements, especially if they have a need for exceptional free-radical defense, or stand to benefit from the proven effects hydrogen uniquely provides (see list above).

    Once you try hydrogen, you will want to continue taking it because the benefits are so significant. Let the power of hydrogen starting working for you on a daily basis!

  • Allergies and Asthma: Supplements and Activities Schedule

    Fred Liers PhD allergies asthmaAllergies and asthma are create misery for many people, especially in the spring when seasonal allergies return due to particulates from plants, including pollens.

    Yet, seasonal allergic symptoms (e.g., itchy eyes, runny nose) and asthmatic symptoms go far beyond the plant pollens of spring. In fact, allergies and asthma are frequently associated with exposures to certain foods and food additives, molds, animal dander, chemicals, and various environmental exposures.

    Fortunately for many sufferers, there are many simple, natural, and alternative means available to help support, alleviate, and in some cases virtually eliminate, the symptoms associated with allergies and asthma.

    SOLUTIONS

    The best solution, according to those who are familiar with the problem, is to 1) avoid the irritating substances completely, 2) reduce as many immunological challenges as possible, 3) take nutritional supplements that help strengthen the body, 4) detoxify, and 5) make certain lifestyle changes with respect to environmental exposures, diet, exercise, stress, relaxation, etc.

    In addition, boosting overall health using protocols from the HPDI Master Rejuvenation Program will help strengthen the body for greater general health, and thereby positively affect how the body deals with conditions such as allergies and asthma.

    DIET

    Beyond avoidance of known plants, substances, and other environmental exposures, your diet can play an important role in supporting health when dealing with allergy and asthma. That is, allergies and asthma can be exacerbated by allergic reactions to the foods you eat, and by adverse effects of foods to which you may not be sensitized. Be observant to correlations between your symptoms and the foods eat.

    Certain foods trigger allergies, so especially avoid foods you know are problematic for you. If you suspect you are allergic to a certain food, then eliminating it for a while (a week or longer) and then reintroducing it into your diet can provide proof as to whether or not the food really is a problem for you.

    Allergies are inflammatory responses. Diet can promote inflammation in the body or relieve it. Inflammation in the body tends to worsen allergies. Over-consuming red meats, for example, can promote inflammation (fish is a better option). In this regard, is very important to obtain a proper balance of omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Consuming the proper ratio of these fats can help regulate inflammation in the body. HPDI offers several essential fatty acid formulas, including Omega Plus and Essential Fats Plus E.

    It is also helpful to maintain an alkaline state in the body, so be sure to include many alkalline-forming foods (e.g., greens, non-starchy vegetables and fruits) in your diet. Try eating Hank's Vegetable Soup several times a week.

    Consume a diet that is relatively low in fat and high in fiber containing foods such as organic vegetables, fruits, whole grains (e.g., brown rice, millet, and quinoa), beans, nuts and seeds (sunflower, chia, flax, pumpkin, almond, walnut and sesame in small amounts (one or two ounces) are good).

    ADDITIONAL DIETARY TIPS

    Avoid foods with artificial ingredients (including preservatives and colorings), as well as processed or refined foods (e.g., white breads and pasta).

    Try to consume only organic foods whenever possible. Avoid genetically modified foods (GMOs). These have been implicated in the development of allergies and other health conditions.

    Generally avoid dairy products when dealing with allergies and asthma. These can produce excess mucus and be acid-forming in the body.

    Try not to eat the same thing every day. An elimination or rotation diet may be useful whereby you give your body a break from consuming the same foods.

    Allergy and asthma can be exacerbated by imbalances in intestinal flora or lack of beneficial bacteria. Poor intestinal health can lead to yeast overgrowth and/or "leaky gut" syndrome. You may need to follow an anti-candida program if you have been on steroids or antibiotics for a long time. HPDI's offers effective probiotics (e.g., Prescript-Assist®) and a unique Intestinal Rejuvenation Formula for individuals who seek to cleanse and purify their intestinal tract and rebuild gut populations of beneficial bacteria.

    NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

    HPDI advises all individuals to take four basic foundational supplements for health: 1) High-potency multivitamin (like Hank & Brian's Mighty Multi-Vite!™), 2) Antioxidant / Vitamin C formula (like Ultimate Protector™), 3) Essential Fats, and 4) High-RNA Rejuvenate!™ superfoods, such as Rejuvenate!™ Berries & Herbs.

    The four foundational formulas help establish a base of nutrients that support a state of good health. General good health is important not only to help the body deal with existing allergies or asthma, but also to help avert the development of new allergies or triggers for asthma.

    Other important formulas include Allergy Support Plus, NAC, and Pantethine. In particular, Allergy Support Plus provides excellent support for allergies by very effectively reducing inflammation in the body. In fact, many users report their symptoms disappear or are greatly reduced. Read more about Allergy Support Plus here.

    The Asthma and Allergy supplement schedule (below) provides an excellent starting point and the following paragraphs make some other suggestions that may be helpful to you. These suggestions do not necessarily represent a comprehensive program for regaining your health.

    ADDITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS FOR ALLERGIES AND ASTHMA

    Additional nutrients that may be helpful include Selenium (200 mcg as l-selenomethionine), Echinacea (as drops or capsules), Quercetin (1500–3000 mg daily), Myo-Mag (1–2 caps 3 times per day), Vitamin B12 as methylcobalamin (5 mg per day sublingually), progesterone cream for women (1/2 tsp twice daily for the first month and then aligned to your menstrual cycle thereafter), Visual Ocuity for irritated eyes, Pure Cordyceps Capsules (4–6 caps daily), and Ubiquinol (50 mg 2–3 times per day). Certain teas and herbs can be helpful, but need to be used properly (e.g., ephedra, licorice, lobelia, skunk cabbage, angelica, and capsicum) because long-term usage may cause loss of effectiveness and possible side effects.

     LIFESTYLE MODIFICATIONS

    It is important to make certain lifestyle changes that allow you to avoid the exposures that can cause you to feel ill.  You may need to use natural materials (paints, flooring, sealants, bedding, etc.). Cooking and drinking water and maybe even bathing/cleaning water needs to be purified. Chlorine itself can induce or exacerbate allergies and asthma.  Clothing, sheets/blankets, towels, soaps, detergents, makeup, shampoos, etc., ideally should be made from natural and organic materials.

    It is best not to have carpeting in the home because not only do they give off toxic chemicals (e.g., formaldehyde), but also collect of a variety of substances (dust, mold, mites, dirt, etc.) that can trigger your allergies or asthma. Prefinished hardwood floors and ceramic tile are the best alternatives. Molds are particularly bad offenders and extra care should be taken to eliminate exposure to them (use dehumidifiers, zepherin chloride (17% diluted to 1%), grapefruit seed extract (may be diluted to one part in 50,000), and low level ozone (0.01–0.05 PPM). If you must use floor coverings, then use natural fiber rugs (e.g., made from wool or plant fibers).

    The use of solvents, petrochemical cleaners, pesticides, strong detergents, and other strong chemicals needs to be avoided (whereas baking soda, vinegar, lemon juice, and some natural cleaners are okay). The use of an air purifer may be extremely helpful to you by eliminating indoor chemicals and molds. Consider consulting a good natural home book, such as Debra Lynn Dadd's Home Safe Home, which is an excellent resource for locating safe materials.

    RELAXATION

    Relaxation exercises (including progressive relaxation, visualization, abdominal breathing, and autogenics) are key to becoming well again. We recommend taking biofeedback training from an expert in your area. Stress reduction methods should be practiced daily. These might include yoga, meditation, breathing exercises, qigong, peaceful music, or prayer. There are several excellent books about the connection between the mind and the health of the body, including Minding the Body, Mending the Mind. Any stresses such as cold air or drinks, emotional upset, anger, fear, etc. can induce asthma.

    EXERCISE

    Try to include a reasonable amount of exercise that is appropriate for you on a daily basis. Yet, remember that overtaxing your body may lead to an overproduction of adrenalin, which can worsen or increase asthma.

    Women sometimes find a correlation between their menstrual cycles and asthma/allergy. Keeping a diary for several months can help determine whether or not there is a correlation for you. An imbalance between estrogen and progesterone can cause menstrually correlated asthma. In this respect, progesterone cream can help.

    CONCLUSION

    Allergies and asthma can be major problems for individuals contributing to discomfort, suffering, and in some cases incapacitation. Through a combination of avoidance, dietary adjustments, lifestyle modifications, and nutritional supplements, the worst symptoms of allergies and asthma can be reduced or eliminated.
